We booked a table in the Rainbow Room for my birthday, at the end of a trip which had included stays in the Crowne Plaza hotel at either end of a week touring round New England to see the amazing Fall colours. Not having been at all impressed by the hotel and its (back) rooms, we were slightly worried that the restaurant might not be too good either, but this was not the case - it was excellent.
The menu is imaginative and creative, the food beautifully presented and delicious. The staff were professional and friendly, there was very little waiting time between ordering and being served and local wines were recommended. As it was my birthday, we were offered a glass of champagne on arrival and the cost of my dessert (a blood orange crème brulee, fab!) was waived.
The restaurant is located on the 10th floor of the hotel with great views of the Falls. We found the prices comparable with Michelin-starred restaurants here in the UK - this was a fine dining experience with top quality food and service.
Thank you to the chefs and the restaurant staff for giving me a wonderful birthday dinner.
